To continue the rugged design of this Alaskan mountain inspired nursery, designers added wood flooring to the space, but with a toddler and an infant around, they needed to create a softer landing for the homeowners' boys, so they added a great cream and tan chevron rug to the space.This rug remains true to the integrity of the design, while providing functionality, texture and comfort.
A hair-on-hide rug in a chevron stripe and a silvery resin coffee table are two of the elements that take this living room in a decidedly glamorous direction. Warm wood paneling extends across the room into the dining area and kitchen, unifying and warming up the open concept spaces.
Light gray walls create a cool tone background for the red accent pieces to pop in this sitting room. A large red sectional is pairs with a red window seat cushion. The large coffee table and ottoman is upholstered with a pattern repeated on throw pillows to tie in the design throughout the room. A frame American flag adds a patriotic touch while complimenting the color scheme.
A wicker headboard and chevron pattern rug add texture to the smooth, bright look of this bedroom. White roman shades blend with the clean white walls for a simple, uncluttered style. A natural wood craftsman style rocker faces the bed. The white bed linens are trimmed with a neutral border and topped with a decorative elephant throw pillow.
An upholstered bed in a fun shade of lilac creates a feminine focal point in this girl's bedroom. The goal for the space was a room well-suited for a young child but flexible enough to grow with her into her teens. Bold pillows atop the Rogers & Goffigon bedding tie in with a chevron-patterned rug.
A top trick by designers for making a living space feel more homey is adding a fun rug to the flooring, even when you already have carpet. You don't have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on an area or antique rug to fill the entire space. Instead, look for one in a pattern that adds pizzazz, like this cowhide rug that designer Michelle Mentzer with Miles Design Group in metro Atlanta picked up at Ikea. She also got the pictures of landscape art and the chevron and plush accent pillows on a discount at HomeGoods.
